Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa’s wedding ceremonies began on Saturday with a small party at Chandigarh’s premium resort. The bride and groom-to-be wore all-white attire for the celebration, attended by close friends and family. Patralekhaa wore a white and silver gown with a lengthy train, while Rajkummar wore all white.
Rajkummar is seen in a video getting down on one knee as his bride-to-be replies yes. The two then danced together to the cheers of the attendees. Saqib Saleem, an actor, and Farah Khan, a filmmaker, were also in attendance.
Rajkummar and Patralekhaa have never been shy about discussing their love for one another. Patralekhaa shared up to about her love journey in a 2019 piece for Humans for Bombay. She revealed that when Rajkummar first saw her in an advertisement, he assumed he would marry her one day.
“He’d often go out of his way for me. Once, he was running late to see me, so he stopped the cab near the airport and ran all the way to Juhu! Not only that, but when we were earning very little, he surprised me with my favorite bag, which was ridiculously expensive! Years later, when we were in London, someone stole it! I remember calling him, sobbing, while he tried to calm me down. For me, the bag was all about the memories – he had bought it for me when he didn’t have much. That meant so much to me! Later, at our hotel, the exact same bag was waiting for me. These little things make me realise how lucky I am to have him,” Patralekhaa said.
Further, the actor said, “I can tell you this, when you find someone you’re grateful for – through the fights, the hurdles and the chaos, you should never forget to let them know you love them. And it doesn’t have to be with expensive gifts and dates – it can simply be with the way you hold them while they need it and when they don’t. For us, we don’t know what the future holds, but this, being together, is enough.”
In Hansal Mehta’s 2014 film Citylights, Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa share screen time.
